If there was ever a season to go buck wild with color and pattern mixing, this is it. Pull out the bold greens and the checkered pinks. Tis the season of pulling stuff off you really can’t pull of any other time. Inappropriately match to your hearts desire.

A Study in Cool

Who among us doesn’t want to be cool? Cool like Kate Bosworth and Ashley Olsen drinking hot coffee in L.A., cool like a dramatic Carine Roitfeld exit from her car service, cool like Abbey Lee with cake frosting white hair in Alex Wang. We of the fashion master mind are consistently chasing cool. We style junkies know coolness is not about the labels you can afford to wear, more importantly its not even all about dressing well.  It’s about looking like your style comes from a gene and not a store. It’s the fierce boots that has an uneven pattern of studs because your dog chewed a few off – but it looks intentional and amazing. Its the Victorian hem on that expensive vintage skirt that you’re wearing with a $12 Coldplay t shirt.  Tailoring cool to make it our own. Getting the ingredients just right to make our coolness delicious. As we all know, not enough cool will make you invisible; too much cool will make you ridiculous. Cool, like carbs is a good thing in moderation. Some women, the Rihannas and Chloe Sevignys of the world can get away with more cool carbs than others. The rest of us need to be keenly aware of our cool formula. So as we jump into what is sure to be an epic Spring, do you know your cool formula?

Aussie brand Something Else designed by the adorably creative and natural Natalie Wood. Its one of those completely wearable labels that have instant identity. Equal parts poetic and genuine. Realistic and feminine but certain and utterly cool.

One of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen in pictures or in person. It’s almost unreal, her perfection is truly never ending.

The New York Cinderella Complex

If you haven’t yet noticed, America loves a New York cinderella story. Instead of a scary house with a mean stepmother and step sisters, she comes from rural America. Instead of escaping to the ball, she escapes to New York and instead of (or in addition to) being rescued by Prince Charming, she is rescued by glamour. Holly Golightly set the mold and made it fun and enviable. Anne Welles (Valley of the Dolls) made it dangerous and raunchy. Carrie Bradshaw made it well…grand and unachievable.

The allure of the New York Cinderella makes us all feel a little more beautiful for being blessed to share our lives with this city. They are equal parts whimsical, liberated, glamorous, chic, brilliant, horny, comical and indomitable. They are a marriage of contradictions and crazy. An intimidatingly fearless view on fashion and a refreshing lack of concern for your opinion. The New York Cinderella is my ultimate Spring 2011 muse.
